Don't know what EC's I should get into [#permalink] New post 09 Apr 2010, 23:50
Hey guys, new to this forum, I THINK I have posted this in the right place. :-D

I am going to be graduating as a MIS major from Arizona in 2011. Maybe this is a bit too early to think about my GMAT and MBA, but since the competition is so high, I want to start ASAP.

In my high school years, I got by with just doing community service and being on the basketball team, because I had good grades/SAT's, and ended up in Arizona, which happens to be a top 5 MIS school. For my MBA however, I want to get into one of those ultra elite type of schools. I don't really know what I should pursue as far as EC's go...I mean, I am into sports, but what can I really do with that? How can I wow others with my leadership abilities? Any advice would be highly appreciated, thanks.

You're thinking about this entirely the wrong way.

You don't "show leadership" through some senseless "Vice President of Underwater Basket Weaving Club for two years in a row" card.

You do something you really love BECAUSE IT MATTERS TO YOU, and if you're involved in that, leadership will naturally show. Have you set up outdoor screenings of matches for your favorite team, and rounded up fellow supporters in town? Do you use the matches to fundraise for causes that matter to you? Do you run a magazine covering those sports in your spare time?

If you're passionate, it'll show.

If you're doing it for business school, it'll show even more.
